Parade of Tall Ships

We spent a gorgeous afternoon enjoying a special parade today. The Tall Ships Festival has been taking place all weekend, and today it ended with a 2 hour parade on the waterfront. The weather was perfect and there were probably over 200 boats in the harbour. About 42 boats from around the Globe were participants ; the rest were spectators.

I hope you enjoy a sampling of what we saw. Click on the photos to enlarge for a better view :)
People lined both sides of the harbourYou almost expect a pirate to jump off this ship. It was one of my favorites.

Theodore Too was created after the children's TV show called Theodore Tug Boat. You can take a harbour ride on this adorable tug !
The grand finale. By far the largest ship.
Thanks for taking a peek :)
